Eleven Years Since Pope John Paul’s Funeral. I Was There And Moved Tremendously.

April 8, 2016

Today marks the exact 11 year anniversary of the funeral of Pope John Paul II (born Karol Jozef Wojtyla), a modern and progressive Pope, humanitarian ,who helped Jewish people, among others, during the horrors in his native Poland during the 1940’s, a country he loved and helped move forward.

One does not have to be Roman Catholic to appreciate this man and what he accomplished. Far from it!

As fate would have it, I was on the street in Rome eleven years ago, watching the entire funeral on a large television screen.

Many things connected that day, including a beautiful song in the service that brought tears to my eyes.

It sounded just like a song my father loved called “My Yiddish Mother.” That moment will stay with me, as I stated, you need not be Catholic, to be in awe of all that Pope John Paul II did to help others.

Witnessing first hand, the tribute to Pope John Paul II pictured and almost surely above, was one of, if not the best, event I ever attended.
